I see this problem all of the time and I know exactly what is going on and how to fix. It would be better to explain over the phone. Would you be willing to speak on the phone?
I have seen the statement above.

Hello and good morning!
Sounds good no problem. I will be happy to help anyway I can.
A few questions.
What size engine do you have?
Can I get your VIN by chance?
Have you checked for any codes in the computer?
Thank you very much for the VIN!
The problem you are experiencing is a BUS communication failure. This will affect both areas you are describing (stalling, no start and gauges inop). The BUS circuit is a communication network circuit that all of the modules on board the vehicle communicate on or with one another. If this circuit gets shorted out some how (by a bad module or a wiring issue), the gauges will stop responding and vehicle may stall and not start back up again.
Based on your VIN, the most likley modules on board the vehicle to go bad causing these conditions are the following..
I see you have viewed my last reply but have not responded back. I am just checking in to see if you have any further questions or to see if you still need help with anything? If so, please let me know as I will be happy to help. If I have answered all of your questions, please dont forget to honor the good faith rating system to complete this conversation.
You could simply disconnect them to see if there is any improvement.
If there is a no communication problem with the computer, you dont have to try and start the vehicle, you could simply disconnect one of these modules and the communication should resume once the key is turned to the ON position. The BCM is located under the hood, on the drivers side attached to the firewall. The cluster of course is the gauges right in front of the driver above the steering wheel.
You got it!!!
